one of my credit card companies (capitol one) started calling me with some of their chitty advertisements.

ya know, trying to get you to pay for additional services for the account etc.

i started screening the calls and blowing it off ... i really didn't want to listen to some ****er from India mumble and stumble his way through the English language trying to convince me to buy some kind of travel discount program or something.

you can barely understand those pieces of crap anyway :cuss:


so i just didn't answer...



the gawddammutherfookerpiecesofcowvomit de-activated my account until i called in and they could activate it again AND give me their fuggin sales pitch!!!!!!!!!


i tried to use it .................. declined :banghead: :banghead:


real funny you cockroach eating, blue dot forehead looking fuggers :cuss:


better be glad i used it online so i didn't get embarrassed or stranded by your ****ed up move.


bastards :mad:

Well, this is certainly interesting news.

I have a Capital One card. If they start making sales calls I'll just cancel the f*cker.

Which is one of the many reason that Bob Dole has not used a credit card since 1996.

Liar. I bet you can recite the entire number sequence for your Discover card while drunk.

apparently it's considered a security procedure


if they can't contact you through your normal account phone number they cancel it until they can verify that you still live there.


:cuss: :cuss:


doesn't matter that you have never had problems or issues ........ or that this contact was started by their sales dept.


worthless dung eating..

Well, they have to find some way to pay for all those f#cking commercials. I swear, the only thing that gets advertised more than those credit cards is light beer.

I had a bad experience with Capital One years ago. I was in the middle stage of restoring my credit rating after filing bankruptcy. I hadn't missed any payments in years, and had another credit card with a $7K limit. Capital One wouldn't raise my limit above $300. I got some shitty letter from a corporate pinhead denying my request for an increase. When I tried to get him on the phone, they wouldn't connect me. I canceled right then and there. Definitely their loss, not mine.

Capital One will never be in my wallet.

Yeas ago I had a buddy of mine almost get f**ked by his credit card company. He bought a few thousand dollars of exercise equipment with the card, then paid it off at then end of the month. The next bill comes and the charges are still on there, plus late fees, interrest, etc. So he checks with his bank and sure enough, the check cleared and before the due date for the last bill.

So he calls them up and tells them they've f**ked up. They deny it. He sends them copies of the cancelled check. Their response? "Sir, it's not in our systems so you still have to pay it." He fights his way up their corporate ladder and gets the next answer:

"Sir, we can't read our tracking number on the back of that check, so we have no idea where that money went. You'll have to pay it."

The f**kers all but admitted they cashed the check but their accountants f**ked up and couldn't find the money. Their solution? He pays them again.

He finally sued them and, not suprisingly, won. IIRC he also got his court costs covered, but of course he was still out days of his own time.

Bob Dole told Discover to **** off some time around 1987. Bob Dole started up a small business and the bastards wouldn't approve a merchant account. Bob Dole does, however, have a Mastercard debit card for which he can recite the number.

Is that an indication that Bob Dole buys too much shit online?

When I was going back and forth from Tucson to Scottsdale my mail got kinda f*cked up for a bit. I didn't get my Discover card statement one month. Now, I always pay online anyway... I knew I had a bill to pay... but, I forgot without that little paper reminder, I guess.

I saw the next month's bill and there were finances charges and whatnot on there. I chalked it up to dumbass tax and was gonna pay it. But, before I could Discover called me up and said the statement had been returned to them in the mail. So, they were gonna wipe all the fees because I never got it.

I must say, I was pleasantly shocked. Granted... it took 'em a couple months to get the removal of the fees right. But, still.

I've had nothing but good luck with my Discover card and the wife's. I've got a Visa for backup just in case but it never comes out.

I use American Express for almost everything. Pay it off at the end of the month (no choice), rack up serious points. Completely paid for my rental car on vacation last year.

That's the only reason I have a Capital One card. For the rare occassions I'm somplace that doesn't take discover.

Same reason I held on to my GM Mastercard (oh the irony of using it to buy gas for my Mustang :D ) - occasionally I run into a place that doesn't take American Express.

i like going to a bar with a cancelled credit card and at the end of the night just go well it must be your machine keep it and run it again tomorrow when your machine is fixed. Half the time no one is caring because i will even buy the waitress a drink on the expired card.

Another friggin Capital One commercial was just on.

Is getting blacked out on travel dates really that rampant? They have about 50 different commercials feeding off this concept. :spock:

I'm sure they do it, too, Tim. Who's gonna shop around after they tell you no? You've already racked up the points with them.

When I fly to Tucson in April, it'll be the first time I've flown anywhere since the summer of 2001. I generally drive. I like flying, but hate all the airport bullshit that goes with it.

I don't see AMEX ever blacking out my rental car weeks. :D

I just flew to CA on Tues night and back to KC Wed night. Man, I hate the seats on planes.

My thoughts exactly. I'm extra annoyed when I have to drive a rental car when I land so I can't even get loaded to dull the pain.

Heh... I still remember my friend who picked me up in StL when I went back for Pat's last year. "You smell like whiskey."

Heh. When I was in the Navy, I flew back from Norfolk to St. Louis and my folks picked me up. The plane couldn't land at Lambert initially because of bad weather, and circled for so long that we had to divert to Memphis to refuel and then fly back to St. Louis. At some point, they announced free drinks. I was totally hammered by the time I got off the plane. My folks, who had already been waiting over 2 hours for me and still had a 3 hour drive back to Kirksville to look forward to, were definitely not amused.

But I was! :BLVD:

Listen to their sales pitch, tell them no then ask them "What's in your wallet?"
